You’re NOT a Court Jester

As someone who carves out time early each morning to scour my RSS feed reader, I’m always aware of what I’m not accomplishing by investing the time necessary to consume input from my trusted sources.

It’s one reason why each April Fool’s day I cringe on the truly lame attempts by geeks to be funny and how 90% of these attempts are not worth the time to view or read.

That said, there are truly some good ones this year that even I — someone who appreciates people and humor attempts that are well done vs. those from people who should no better than to act the fool — are finding to be worth checking out:

Even with a few funny ones, remember geeks: if the court jester displeased the King, he was beheaded.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
